Sony Cyber-shot HX99 shoots 4K with a 28x zoom

Postby sidd finch » Fri Oct 19, 2018 9:58 am

I am a huge fan of cameras that are small but pretty powerful. And, at $450.00 USD This new Sony camera looks to be a pretty cool new addition.

The latest Cyber-shot camera from Sony, the HX99, is “the world’s smallest travel camera” with the highest zoom offered for this type of travel camera.

The camera measures in at just 4×2.3×1.4 inches so it’s definitely small — positioning it to be a great travel camera. However, just because it’s small doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack some punch. This travel camera packs a 28x zoom and shoots 4K video with full pixel readout.

Inside the HX99 lies an 18.2-megapixel backside-illuminated 1/2.3-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor. The megapixel count here seems to be fairly typical of a camera in Sony’s Cyber-shot HX series. Additionally, the sensor offers an ISO range of 80-12800.

Image stabilization is offered on the HX99. The camera features Optical SteadyShot image stabilization along with Zoom Assist — a temporary zoom-out display that shows a wider area when shooting distant subjects, RAW photos, Tough Focus, Touch Shutter, Touch Pad, a customizable Control Ring, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Wouldn't you rather have that Sony HX99 than a GoPro?

I have a small Nikon S7000 with 20x Optical that works very with my smartphone gimble, except I have to mount the camera pointing in the opposite direction to the way the smartphone points. The lens on the Nikon would be blocked by the gimble hardware otherwise.

I think for my purposes having both would work out best. There are situations that I would be hesitant to attach the Sony camera. The GoPro is also waterproof.
